Beginning in late May, we explore the hidden habitat of the Knight Inlet grizzly bears or the spectacular X̱a̱ḵwika̱n (Thompson Sound) or Hada (Bond Sound).  Other wildlife viewing opportunities include eagles, humpback whales, minke whales, Pacific white-sided dolphins, Dahl’s Porpoises, seals, sea lions and wolves. To book this package, please email reservations @ When you make your inquiry, please provide alternate dates as this trip is subject to availability and has limited seating capacity. 

This tour includes:

  • Two nights accommodation at Alert Bay Lodge

2. Whale Watching Tours - Prices range from $110 to $120 per person.

We work with operators in Alert Bay and Telegraph Cove. The operator in Alert Bay operates a 12 passenger open vessel which tends to personalize the experience of seeing whales. Our operator in Telegraph Cove runs 40' and 60' covered boats with on-board naturalists.
